One church joining faith and action

Sunday sermon, March 21, 2021

This sermon for the 5th Sunday of Lent begins with a reading from John 12:20, in which Jesus compares himself to a seed that falls to the ground and appears to be dead, but later produces wheat. Like the seed, Christ died on the cross, but rose again to give new life to all who believe. In his sermon, Pastor Tom Hartshorn tells us that death is necessary for all of us to meet God and prepare for what God promises.

After the sermon, Director of Music Joey DiGuglielmo plays Adagio Sostenuto from sonata no. 14 (op. 27, no. 2) “Moonlight Sonata,” and “Beneath the Cross of Jesus.”
